Preventive Culture

It is fundamental to embed our Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Preventive Culture in everything we do. There are many ways in which we ensure this culture is integrated throughout Bombardier, including through employee training and development, performance monitoring, site tours, continuous improvement programs and risk assessments conducted prior to work beginning on a new program or at a new site.

HSE Standards, Certifications and Regulations

All of our sites are required to abide by our HSE Policy. Those sites that are eligible (facilities with more than 150 employees) have achieved certification according to the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001 and are ISO 14001:2004 certified.

These standards guide our efforts to identify and manage HSE risks and impacts. They help us track and manage HSE risks and impact reduction programs across our manufacturing, service, maintenance and engineering operations. Systematically integrating OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 standards into our operating systems drives continuous improvement.

Every three years, HSE legal compliance audits are conducted by external auditors at eligible sites (facilities with more than 50 employees).

The majority of our rail transportation manufacturing facilities in Europe are registered under the European EcoManagement and Audit Scheme (EMAS).1

Our facilities in Ontario also track and report any use or creation of toxic substances in accordance with the Toxics Reduction Act.
